Introduction

Meet some of our great people

Schibsted is a team of almost 7,000 great people around the world. Here’s 
what some of them have to say when we asked them these two questions:

  1. Thinking of the future, what makes you excited?
  2. What’s the best thing about Schibsted?

  1. I’m excited about being part of something really big and useful. By shopping second hand at Willhaben, Austrians are saving more than 200,000 tons of CO2 every year – that is enough to cover for the yearly energy for 150,000 households.
  2. Schibsted is a big global group with so many passionate and talented people – we definitely have the potential to win this game. I really like 
being part of this fantastic network of international experts.

  1. I’m excited about how innovation and technology influence the communication field. I think we should keep experimenting with these new opportunities.
  2. The best thing about Schibsted is Schibsted itself. We are a great company and we’re facing new challenges. With the new over all organization we are turning into a truly international company, sharing information and opportunities.

  1. I’m excited to develop new products and conquer new categories in the classified market. And to give our users the best experience at the best 
marketplace, allowing them to make good deals and finding new jobs.

HR-tool that is being implemented across our group – the Workday project – and how it will make our 
lives easier.
  2. In Schibsted we are all different, 
from different countries and with different believes, but once we gather we have exactly the same worries and we speak the same language.

  1. I’m excited about being a part of the transformation that Schibsted is going through, coming together as one tech company. We will be much more efficient, beat the competition and be more valuable to our users by being faster and better.
  2. I like the fact that our goals are super ambitious. And that the change is giving us an opportunity to build a lot from scratch. This attracts talents. The scale of the company and the focus in quality make Schibsted one of the best places to be for tech people in Europe today.

Strategy Project Manager at Schibsted Established Markets

  1. I’m excited about what technology brings to our day-to-day lives. VR for instance, that brings you anywhere, anytime. I do believe it will affect our marketplaces – the way you present a car or an apartment, how it can shorten distances and really improve the 
user experience.
  2. I think the best thing about Schibsted is the energy of its employees. The organization is going through deep and meaningful changes and I’m amazed at the resilience of people. In an industry that is changing so quickly and so deeply the people here really have the right mindset to tackle the challenges ahead.

Tech reporter at Norwegian newspaper Aftenposten

  1. The thing I’m most excited about right now is using tools, developed within machine learning, for statistical analysis in journalism – to generate tips and ideas for stories from big data.
  2. The best thing about Schibsted is actually managing to launch Schibsted Media Platform into a tool that we can actually use. I was skeptical, because I worked on developing journalistic tools before and it’s very hard. But the results that we’ve seen are very promising. I only hope the launch of the programmatic ad tool will come soon, because we need it fast.
SARAH WU
Head of Business Development, Blocket, Schibsted’s marketplace in Sweden

  1. What excites me the most is how fast things are changing, industries are breaking up and user behavior is changing every day. And how difficult it is to predict how this will impact our daily lives. Being a part of that change is really awesome.
  2. The best thing about Schibsted is that it’s actually part of that change. And that we are able to work with the products and features that will change how people live their daily lives.
MARIA DEL PILAR LONDOÑO
General Manager Fincaraiz, Scibsted’s marketplace in Colombia
  1. I’m excited about the possibility to sell mobile programmatic. It will provide us with more time to share with our customers, enable us to analyze ROI campaigns much deeper and to carry out changes to improve these.
  2. To me, the best thing about Schibsted is the culture, and the possibility to share good practices and global components. And also that Schibsted provides key talents to be promoted inside other Schisbted companies.

  1. I’m excited to see how our sites in emerging markets will develop. We have strong positions in all markets and it’s about leveraging these positions and 
creating commercial relationships with 
car dealers, real estate agencies and 
property developers. I’m excited to see 
how revenues will hopefully grow.
  2. The best thing about Schibsted is definitely the people. Working with such fun and intelligent people is really inspiring.
